I am fascinated by sources of power and the nature of control. My art is a response to the aleatory essence of life, the seemingly random conflation of events over which we have no control, but which exert control over our every action. The various ways we respond to both the voluntary and involuntary restrictions of power ignite the ideas behind my investigations. The examination of power dynamics utilizing color, scale, spectacle and theatricality is what excites my process, navigating the frontier between sensory perception and metaphysical experience. The work is fabricated with the familiar in order to render the unfamiliar.
